Yesterday I saw an ad on my Facebook page for the “Latest Diet Craze”. Why was I drawn to this?
Later in the day, a friend and I were talking and she said something that resonated with me. Something I remember saying to myself, many years ago.
Inside, I still feel like the skinny, strong girl. When I look in the mirror, I still see that skinny girl, but when I see a photo of myself, I’m not. When I try to run or be active I discover I am not… I want to get her back!
I remember feeling this way in 1999. I had just gotten photos from a friend’s wedding in the mail and it took me a moment to realize the “fat girl” in the photos was me. My health was failing, my energy level was flat, and I began trying every latest “craze” I came across.
Flash forward to 2007 when I discovered that the latest craze wasn’t the answer. Old fashioned nutrition and choices are the answer.
It isn’t a number on the scale, it IS how my clothes fit, what size they are, and how I feel. It is a daily decision to consume and use the products that promote health and choosing to eliminate that which does not.
